More Olympic Stuff

Found some more Olympic stuff while I was screwing around this afternoon. This link contains two videos from the Daily Show, and they're pretty funny.

Olympic Stories

So the Olympics started last week and I've watched little else on TV. This is the only time when I'll watch sports that I don't normally watch (Most of the sports in the Olympic program aren't typically broadcasted anyway), and of course there are stories which get generated and told and retold over and over again. Anyhow, I was on digg.com today and there was a link to "Olympic Stories We're Tired of Hearing." I checked it out and had heard of all of them, but I'm not necessarily tired of hearing them, I do disagree with number five on this list mostly based on this and this picture. I don't know if anyone else has watched the Olympics as much as me, so I am unsure as to how much everyone else will comprehend this list but I did find this entertaining; number one is my favorite, and I'm pretty sure number nine is true. Check it out:

Olympics Stuff

Sports I've watched during the Olympics (none of which I would watch normally): boxing, fencing, whitewater rafting, rowing, shooting, gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, handball, field hockey, swimming, diving, water polo, badminton, tennis, baseball, softball, cycling, equestrian, and soccer. Many more to come...

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and Television in General

Greetings.

This is suppose to be a highly polished entry with pictures and video clips of all the television shows I love, but I'm tired and I have a cold, and I finally got contacted by my research adviser and now have a bunch of work to do for that.

I did, however, want to introduce you to Joss Whedon's latest creation Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (torrent). Available below for free (with commercials) (click to go to Hulu and watch in HD).

I've only seen the first act (of three), but pretty much love it. I hope you enjoy.

I've been disappointed in TV recently, and this is something new and good.

I miss having something by Aaron Sorkin to watch (having now seen every episode of every show he's ever been involved with) and after loving Sports Night for years, I started in on The West Wing. I still frequently find myself flipping channels past 2 and a Half Men, and America's Got Talent, wishing more than anything for a new episode of The West Wing.

WTF AARON SORKIN, WRITE SOME NEW GOD DAMN SHOWS ALREADY!

(As a side note, anyone else notice how much Obama sounds like Bartlet?)

Anyhow, as far as currently on TV, I'm down to BSG (Soon to be over) The Office (same) and a new series I've started to love called Mad Men (check it out).

Oh, and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, which has come and gone in one fowl swoop (it's a one time thing produced for the web).

So go watch it. It's got Doogie Howser, Captain Malcolm Reynolds, and a cute redhead. What more could you want?

8/8/08: The Funniest Day of the Century

laugh.gif

Today is officially 8/8/08!!! As we all know, eight is the funniest number that anyone can use, so therefore today is the funniest day of the century. We won't see another 8/8/08 until the 22nd century, so enjoy it while it lasts folks.

Also, the Olympics begin today with the opening ceremony broadcast here in the states. I believe competition has actually began already in Beijing, but they're crazee far ahead of us. Personally, I've always enjoyed the Olympics when they come around, and I'll most likely be watching nothing but Olympic coverage until it's over. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

Ninja McFear signing off. And remember, have fun today!!!

Silent Hill: Homecoming


So after this year's E3, a lot of new footage and gameplay demos came out for SH5. Most of what I have seen has been based more on the exploration and graphical prowess of the game, and not so much on the new combat system (which is my primary concern with the game as you know, as it defeats one of the core elements of the games that we love.) However, I did see in- game footage of a conversation that led right into a boss fight, that looked like something straight out of SH 2 or 3. I have to say it was a comfort to see that the Collective is trying to stay true to the spirit of the older games, especially 2, hailed by many as the best of the series. Also, the conversations actually have decision trees, very similar to a lot of main stream RPGs, so every conversation can have an effect on the plot, thus providing multiple means to reach one of several endings. In any case, I am getting excited about this one.
